September 2014 Daily Post Challenge (#1) “…accepting the Award for Mr. Quality, the lovely and enticing Ms. Quantity!”

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)


…as has happened an un-counted number of times since I started this blog, I am in an introspective phase of…. ‘what am I doing with this Wakefield Doctrine’.  Surely this time of re-examination is as common as frayed-waistband underwear, however, it always manifests as a unique this-time-it’s-different experience. For better or for worse, I have decided to be more….public with my self-examination. My questioning of the whole point of my writing a blog, regardless of the fact that it is about a unique and productive and fun theory of personality, seems to be an inevitable part of the process that started …(no frickin way!) 5 years ago.

Of course, for those of us who would write a blog, every moment of doubt is always sincere and heartfelt and genuine, (no!-stop-giggling-I’m-trying-to make-a-serious-point-here). But like the first crush/first car/first fear, this time  feels different. That is, I suspect, as it is supposed to be.

So, on each of the next 30 days, I will write a Post. They will be long Posts and they will be short Posts, they will be weird Posts and they will be TToT Posts (wait, I already said ‘weird’) and, for the record, I have not the slightest idea if there will be any point or value or anything other than….quantity.

…. so to start,  I know what it is that’s bothering me about the state of the Wakefield Doctrine blog:

  1. that I would write such a sentence and actually leave it in the Post
  2. that, for those who were around for the first couple of years, the Wakefield Doctrine was the point of this blog, not clark Farley-that-guy-with-that-‘personality-theory’
  3. a (seeming) loss of the ‘hey! this is the Wakefield Doctrine and you should see what it can do!’

…and, (to certain Readers), yes this blog will continue to be a semi-public experiment/demonstration of the use and efficacy of the principles of the  Wakefield Doctrine as a tool for self-development.

but then, you knew that, didn’t you.

Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three...but mostly one

    awww c’mon…. can you get frist on your own blog?

      So #3… really? This bothers you? I mean you think its lost that? Having read your previous blog posts in archives I think you’ve just loosened up a bit and become a more expressive writer… the
      Whole…. ‘hey! this is the Wakefield Doctrine and you should see what it can do!…. thing is totally still there! Maybe even more so… don’t ya think? Well, obviously not or you wouldn’t have mentioned that…but still….

        good point. I trust that I will find the (next) new passion for the blog (as I have on previous occasions).

        in point of fact, I have been thinking about the response this weekend to Item 5 on my list, specifically how we have examples of people representing the three worldviews responding in, what I would insist are totally characteristic of their respective worldviews… ( it has always been this thing about the Doctrine, turning up in the real world that has been the source of the drive and fun of writing. It (my current ennui is, no doubt, merely my response to the realization that the long-hanging fruit are in Christine’s Mason jars and I need to evolve myself a taller damn neck!)

  2. What IS it with us clarks? I must go through this about once a month with my own blog: what the hell am I doing with it? Nothing right now…my eyeballs and head are spinning in opposite directions in a dizzying array of academic tasks that take up all my time.
    Whew. Three months and some. Lawd help me. :P

    This should be fun. I like the posts when you have the time to edit yourself, but I can’t wait to see what you throw out here just because you have to get something posted NOW!

      I bet I have tried something like this before, but, as we all know, you can’t step in the same river twice, y’all.

      though I know for a fact, I have not tried this kind of (exercise in Doctrine Posts) with as numerous (or astute) bunch of readers… (meaning that I probably won’t try an entire Post written in a google-translated foreign language.*

      * unless, of course, the context is just right! lol

    Every. Single. Day? Maybe you’re warming yourself up to do the A to Z Challenge.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      sure…provided every day is either W or D lol

      (no, you’re right…I would be able to apply the Doctrine to pretty much anything)
